The testimony came on the third day of the trial of Azamat Tazhayakov, a Kazakh exchange student who was one of three friends of Tsarnaev who prosecutors have charged with hampering the investigation by removing the backpack from the suspect's room and tossing it into a dumpster. Bayan Kumiskali, a Kazakh national and a student at Babson College outside Boston, said she had been staying at the New Bedford, Massachusetts, apartment of her boyfriend, Dias Kadyrbayev, when he told her about the backpack he had taken three days after the deadly blasts while police were searching for Tsarnaev. Tazhayakov and Kadyrbayev have both been charged with obstruction of justice and conspiracy for taking the backpack and a laptop.
